Looking for the realized and estimated price?

Description: Lady in medieval dress at her toilette
signed with monogram and dated '1907' (lower left)
pencil and watercolour with scratching out
19 1/2 x 17 1/2 in. (49.5 x 44.5 cm)

Notes: Although Rheam was part of the artistic community based in Newlyn, Cornwall, his style and subject matter were never characteristic of his peers. He tended to follow the principles of the Pre-Raphaelites, and the present painting is a typical example of this. The model is likely to have been Rheam's wife Alice Elliot. She appears in many of his works, most notably The Fairy Woods, which was sold in these Rooms, 1996, (£55,000).

VAT rate of 5% is payable on hammer price plus buyer's premium.

Artist or Maker: Henry Meynell Rheam (1859-1920)
